Why do you resist saving money?
An interesting question, that I have had lots of questions on this week, so I thought I would do a blog on it.
It is not just saving money we resist, but we resist change generally.
We are really happy in our comfort zones.
It takes a lot to get us out of those and in to doing something new.
For example, I was really happy paying £30 a month for my mobile phone and have done so for many years, more than 10 years. It was only when I started paying £38 for my new iphone, I was bit uncomfortable.
Then a friend said to me, she only pays £5 and I was “she is tights”, she’s not.
Or “she probably doesn’t have data” she does.
Instantly, I didn’t want to admit that maybe I could have got a better deal and it was my loss and not hers.
It wasn’t till I lost the signal on my mobile phone and couldn’t hear people, that I actually did something about it!
Even noticing they charged me twice for one month didn’t do it.
In less than an hour, I have managed, with the same supplier to get a better deal, improve the quality of the call, for more data, text and calls that I have ever used for £5 a month. I was amazed.
Not just that, I got £60 refund, which effectively meant the first year was free.
A few years later, I am still paying £5 a month, saving £300 per year.
I haven’t had to review it every year, which is always nice but I realised other people are missing out.
I wanted to let people know that it is possible with the internet changing so fast, to save 100’s of pounds on those bills, you think you have to pay, as opposed to those things you want to pay.
So my challenge to you “How much can you save?”
I would love to hear how much you have saved.
I also know you need to be moved from that state of comfort to discomfort, in order to have it happen!
So I have scheduled a workshop in 3 weeks time, on Saturday 15th July.
If you haven’t saved at least £100 by then, come to the workshop.
I will motivate you and actually help you do it as part of my Money Mastery Workshop.
I really want us to spend our money how we choose.
Whether that is paying off debt, going on holiday or just a really nice day out?
Save the money on things you are not really interested on buying but you have to!
Here’s the link to the Money Mastery Workshop.
Thank you very much for watching, Jenny
